Improvisation is the core of clarinetist Ben Goldberg's Good Day For Cloud Fishing, and not just the music. His fascination with poet Dean Young's work led to the creation of this album where the trio of Goldberg, Nels Cline and Ron Miles improvised upon a musical sketch that Goldberg wrote based upon one of Young's poems. The poet was present in the studio with his sturdy typewriter and he then created a new poem based on the music he was hearing. Definitely different; it's a unique recording. The novel ideas continue with Belgian drummer Teun Verbruggen's The Bureau of Atomic Tourism working on music composed specifically to challenge the skills of the band members, while Portuguese pianist Daniel Bernardes offers a new take on the hugely influential Olivier Messiaen by augmenting his trio with the Drumming GP ensemble. Kongrosian from Germany is a saxophone trio—not a common format in jazz, while Finnish bass phenom, Ville Herrala debuts his new solo recording as does the sizzling Tower Jazz Composers Orchestra from Ferrara Italy..
